And Jesus having passed over in the ship again to the other side, a great crowd gathered to him; and he was by the sea.
And [behold] there comes one of the rulers of the synagogue, by name Jairus, and seeing him, falls down at his feet;
and he besought him much, saying, My little daughter is at extremity; [I pray] that thou shouldest come and lay thy hands upon her so that she may be healed, and may live. a24
And he went with him, and a large crowd followed him and pressed on him.
And a certain woman who had had a flux of blood twelve years,
and had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent everything she had and had found no advantage from it, but had rather got worse,
having heard concerning Jesus, came in the crowd behind and touched his clothes; b28
for she said, If I shall touch c but his clothes I shall be healed.
And immediately her fountain of blood was dried up, and she knew in her body that she was cured from the scourge.
And immediately Jesus, knowing in himself the power that had gone out of him, turning round in the crowd said, Who has touched my clothes?
And his disciples said to him, Thou seest the crowd pressing on thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And he looked round about to see her who had done this.
But the woman, frightened and trembling, knowing what had taken place in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said to her, Daughter, thy faith has healed thee; go in peace, and be well of thy scourge.
While he was yet speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's [house], saying, Thy daughter has died, why troublest thou the teacher any further?
But Jesus [immediately], having heard the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not; only believe.
And he suffered no one to accompany him save Peter and James, and John the brother of James.
And he comes d to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and sees the tumult, and people weeping and wailing greatly.
And entering in he says to them, Why do ye make a tumult and weep? the child has not died, but sleeps.
And they derided him. But he, having put [them] all out, takes with [him] the father of the child, and the mother, and those that were with him, and enters in where the child was lying.
And having laid hold of the hand of the child, he says to her, Talitha koumi, which is, interpreted, Damsel, I say to thee, Arise.
And immediately the damsel arose and walked, for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with great astonishment.
And he charged them much that no one should know this; and he desired that [something] should be given her to eat.
